WATER BOILER AND KETTLE FOR THE OPTIMUM WATER TEMPERATURE
Not all hot water is the same, individual temperatures are recommended for different preparation methods. It is similar with the different types of tea, for example, a green tea requires a much lower temperature when infusing the boiling water than a classic fruit tea. Buy a kettle with gooseneck for hand infusion of filter coffee in the hand filter, French Press, Aeropress and more.
WHAT IS A KETTLE WITH GOOSENECK?
If you do not know directly what is meant when you hear the name of a kettle with a gooseneck, you should pay attention now. The narrower and longer the opening of the water spout of a kettle, the more precise the output of hot water can be. Particularly for hand infusion with a hand filter, some precision is required so that all the aromas of the coffee can develop evenly. The kettle thus allows a precise and circular movement, so that the water can be distributed in the filter and the "cratering" in the middle of the paper filter is avoided. Because of the special spout, the name for the units with a long spout is "gooseneck kettle". The Fellow kettles as well as the products of the Hario, Barista Space and Brewista brands have just this special swan neck spout.
WHICH KETTLE TO BUY FOR MY NEEDS?
So, for hand brewing filter coffee, it is now clear which type of kettle is right for you. Now it's a matter of the nature of your kitchen. Are you a fan of heating the water on the stove in the kettle, or would you rather have a kettle with a base that has a power plug to heat the water? The decision is entirely up to your personal preferences. Nowadays, real baristas can't do without a kettle for making coffee without a temperature indicator. Through this display, baristas can make temperature settings tailored to their needs until you are finally satisfied with the temperature selection. Since the taste is significantly affected, you should find out the right temperature for your optimal coffee enjoyment. The optimal brewing temperature of a filter coffee is between about 86-96 °C. As a general rule, Arabica beans require a higher brewing temperature than Robusta beans. The grind of the coffee also affects the water temperature, as a temperature of about 90 °C is the best option for finely ground coffee.
